Buggs Island Producing Huge Crappie

By: Chris Bullock After a slower March, April has turned out to be a banner month for big crappie on Kerr Lake. The water warmed up and we are catching large crappie up to three pounds. For the last two weeks we’ve averaged 25-30 crappie caught over 10 inches a day. Our continued success will [...]

Kerr Lake Crappie Update

By: Chris Shaffer Prior to mid-week catching large sums of crappie on Kerr Lake wasn’t a chore. Meanwhile, in response to a week of instability Kerr Lake crappie are frustrating anglers. This pattern will likely persist until atmospheric stability returns, which hopefully happens soon. Currently crappie are scattered and have backed off recent migrations toward [...]

Crappie Fishing Louisiana’s Lake Bistineau

By: Chris Shaffer Lake Bistineau wasn’t on the list of places we wanted to film in Northern Louisiana. Meanwhile, with high winds predicted it was where we were destined to salvage a day of crappie fishing. We were slated to fish on Lake D’Arbonne, but strong winds kept us off that lake. Fortunately, often overlooked [...]

Southwest Florida Mangrove Snook Bite Steady

By: Chris Shaffer It’s snowbird season in Florida. That was evident by the traffic and hotel prices we encountered this week. We expected that. Meanwhile, we didn’t think temperatures in the upper 80s would greet us. The warm weather appeared to change traditional winter fishing patterns and make fishing more challenging, at least where we [...]

Learn to Make the Perfect Egg For Spring Chinook

By: Duane Inglin When fishing bait for steelhead I prefer dime size egg clusters. Meanwhile, when I get larger, more mature skeins I cure them for springers. Spring Chinook are finicky biters. These plump, juicy eggs that milk out well and emit a strong scent trail increase strikes. With springers combining multiple baits that springers [...]

Splake Showing Now Through Ontario Ice

By: Tom Armstrong The Chartreuse Fire Dye minnow was practically glowing on the tube jig as I dropped it down beneath the ice in search of an aggressive splake. Cameras were rolling inches from my face as we attempted to film Pautzke Outdoors on a remote Northern Ontario lake. I was jigging the bait about [...]

Big Milwaukee Browns Showing Through the Ice

By: Chris Shaffer I was prepared to wait. Wait for hours. That’s hours standing on 12 inches of ice and in single digit temperatures while watching our 12 Automatic Fisherman’s waiting for one to spring up. It was almost 6:50 am and the sun hadn’t beamed against the Milwaukee skyline yet. Meanwhile, five minutes passed [...]

Why Color Matters: Make Vibrant Eggs

By: Kyle Buschelman I use to think that scent was the most important part of having good bait. Meanwhile, I’m starting to change my mind. Scent is important, yet not the biggest factor when developing good steelhead bait. I’ve come to this conclusion after spending time using beads and still catching steelhead. The last few years [...]

Central Oregon Steelhead Slow to Start So Far

By: Kyle Buschelman Winter steelhead season on the Oregon Coast is in full swing and we are catching fish daily. However, I don’t think we have a lot of fish in the systems right now. I’ve had to adjust my program and be flexible based on daily pressure and rapidly changing river levels. I’m hoping [...]

St Johns Crappie Hitting Chartreuse Minnows

By: Dustin Slinker I’ve been excited all fall to fly down to Central Florida to fish crappie. Newnans and Orange Lake are lakes that I’ve read and heard about as being producers of big crappie in the Gainesville area, but I was more excited about the famous St Johns River system. We planned to spend [...]
